G&G 94-96 , WA 90-92. Tasting note: Candied citrus and honey, a noble-rotted wine with delicate scents of quince, spices and fresh wax. Mouth-coating with good length and extremely refreshing acidity. (16-Apr-2013) [Gilbert & Gaillard] The 2012 has a lifted bouquet of quince, marmalade and yellow flowers that is precise and focused. The palate is viscous and convincing on the opening, offering good depth and cohesion with satisfactory botrytis, though it tails away ever so slightly on the finish. Still, this is a commendable effort and is another fine 2012 Barsac. Nobody promotes their estate more than the dynamic Aline Baly, and good for...

Burghound 88. Chablis VV 2015 – 88/100 Tasting note: ...there is again good volume to the concentrated and more mineral-driven flavors that possess slightly better depth on the balanced finish. This is lovely if not entirely classic.

Burgundy Report - Bill Nanson 2016-11 "A golden impression, to the nose. Fresh, mineral and with a very nice silky texture. Really very mineral and quite interesting - citrus acidity. Yum! " Tiny production from vines planted in 1969 (1.86 hectares). All the plots of Burgundy Aligoté of the domain are planted on the commune of Meursault in rather deep lands of clay-limestone nature.

The "Pic Premier" is almost a Grand Cru, because the Cuvee consists of Grand Cru wines of the location Les Clos and of Premier Cru wines of the location Mont-de-Milieu. With the Pic Premier, the winemaker has resurrected the 1961 Grand Cru, a wine of unique elegance and finesse. Successful blend of noble chablis with slender, solidly structured body, of spicy suppleness, with brilliant freshness, healthy acidity and elegant finish.
Maison Régnard, one of the oldest and most prestigious wine houses in Burgundy, has a very old historical enclosure in the Pouilly Fuissé vineyard, the Clos du Pavillon. This Pouilly Fuissé Clos du Pavillon is simply a great Burgundy wine from which to benchmark all wines from the region. Brilliant.
